The Russian Bear never sleeps

With all this mess we have been going through with Russia again, I have been thinking that, as baby boomers, we have lived under fear of some type of war with Russia all of our lives.

Balancing the estates of the realm

There are some who believe that the world is divided into estates: the first estate being the church, the second being the government, and the third being the people. The fourth estate is generally reserved for the media.

A clearer understanding of Obama

Two weeks ago, I told my wife Molly that I wasn't going to spend the weekend doing Honey Do's especially around the yard. Honestly, I should say I requested this, since I was still suffering from a poison ivy infection on my feet received from picking up sticks in the woods from the weekend before.

Oh, what a night

I remember in 1971, Frankie Valli, who had been singing on his own, had just reunited with the Four Seasons and they were touring the country.

On a warm Saturday in June, a friend and I went to Carowinds, an amusement park located in South Carolina, and joined 5,000 other devoted fans and sat through one of the most enjoyable concerts I had ever attended. During the middle of the concert, a horrific summer rain storm struck, and for 15 minutes, it rained so hard that you could barely see the covered stage and not one person left.

I have always loved Christmas and its traditions; even as I have grown older, I find that really deep in my heart I still believe in Santa Claus and the spirit of the whole season, and I just can't wait until I see the "Frosty the Snowman" and "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" re-runs at this time of year with the grandchildren.

Tears on Veterans Day

I am still not quite sure whether it is the result of the open-heart surgery I had 13 years ago or the fact I have gotten older, but it seems that I can well up with uncontrolled tears these days due to the strangest things.

Today is Mother's Day, and just like most of you, Molly and I have dispatched flowers and candy to my mother to tell her we were thinking about her and to show our love.

Sports editor didn’t “en-deer” himself

After all these years in the newspaper business and being in areas where natural disasters, murders and community political misbehaving's have taken place, it still catches me off guard and amazes me what type of story will really get readers' attention and that will get legs and be transported around the country.
